Description from owner

Description

CASAS NOVAS is situated in East Algarve. This is a tiny village set in a high valley of the mountainous protected national park of the 'Serra de Alcaria do Cume'. The country roads to Casas Novas change from tarmac at 'Umbria' then along apx 3 k of good forestry road with the final rough track into the village to be driven along slowly.

Our traditional "quinta" is the natural choice to retreat to for peace and relaxation. Nature, calm and quiet. A seasonal spring fed river, offering an occasional swimming hole in winter spring and early summer, provides an oasis for bird life and wonderful springflowers.

'Dark skies' provide a great view of the night sky.

The 'Solea' is a cottage with self catering facilities.Recently restored in the traditional Algarve style with timber beams and bamboo lined ceilings.Roofs and floors are tiled in the warm coloured terracotta from our local pottery.

The facilities include a double bed formed from two large singles, plus a wardrobe. An ensuite shower and wc.

A fully fitted kitchenette, table and chairs. Shaded by a fig tree the private walled garden terrace enjoys views of the adjoining hills and wild flower meadows.
